Changing the Tune: An Introduction to the “Keychange” Gender Parity Project

Keychange - a groundbreaking European project pioneered by PRS for Music Foundation launched in 2017 - is empowering women to transform the future of the music industry and encouraging festivals to achieve a 50:50 balance by 2022. With 45 festivals now on board, it’s taking the international music industry by storm. Find out why you should pay attention to this game-changer, from early successes and exciting partnerships (including Canadian Music Week) to future goals and how they will help accelerate the industry’s recognition of women’s potential artistic and economic value to transform the music industry for current and future generations.
